    I think the "break;" is ommited on purpose: readdir returns multiple
    entries.

    But:
    a few lines later it call "read_lock(adfs_read_lock);", it acquires a
    spinlock.
    Then it calls filldir(), and filldir() calls put_user()/copy_to_user().

    What about replacing the read_lock with a rw_semaphore?
